CYC organizes cruises that provide an opportunity for social weekend cruising, create an environment to exchange cruising knowledge, and provide opportunities for families to enjoy cruising. Cruises can always be added to the CYC calendar. Is there someplace you think it would be fun to visit with friends? Join us and organize and lead a cruise.

On the Second Thursday of each month, the cruising group hosts a cruising social. The CYC Cruisers Social is an opportunity for CYC members to connect with other CYC cruisers to share cruising knowledge. We often have a specific program focusing on cruising topics or an open forum of discussion. We have just returned to In Person Cruisers Socials at the recently refurbished CYC Clubhouse. We are using a Hybrid format allowing those who are unable to attend in person, for any reason, to be able to participate via Zoom. If you would like to participate via Zoom please register to receive the link. Cruising Socials are a potluck format. Please bring something fun and delicious to share as well as your own beverage.

To help organize cruises or receive additional information on CYC cruising events,  contact Andrew Bereson, CYC Fleet Captain Cruise.

    • Bremerton

    Last year 9 CYC boats and 20 people attended our cruise to Port Orchard on a beautiful warm sunny weekend.  The fireworks and activities were cancelled due to the pandemic; nevertheless, we had a great time mingling on the docks, and walking in Port Orchard.  We will always remember it was really hot, maybe around 90 degrees Fahrenheit that weekend!

    This year the Bremerton Bridge Blast web page has already been set up: https://www.bremertonbridgeblast.com/  The fireworks are on Saturday evening set off the bridge – some launched into the air over the bridge, and others raining into the water below.  We can watch from the Port Orchard side, or take the foot ferry from the Port Orchard marina across to Bremerton, and then walk over to the bridge to see the fireworks show up close. 

    Earlier Saturday afternoon there is a market set up near the Port Orchard marina, and then a parade of floats, cars, and bands down main street. The Port Orchard Fathoms of Fun web page has been posted, but does not have events posted yet:  https://www.fathomsofun.org/

    I will reserve some moorage slips for us in Port Orchard now, and adjust the numbers as the cruise weekend approaches.  It is easier to give up slips than to add them, as last year there was another group sharing the marina and party tent.  

    If you think you would like to attend, please sign up on the web page now or let me know!  The CYC sign up page is at:  https://cycseattle.org/event-4660359

    Best regards,

    • Blakely Rock

    We've brought back one of the favorite cruises of the year. Blakely Rocks Low Tide cruise with brunch on the beach is a long standing event with CYC. We will anchor/raft up in Blakely Harbor and take dinghies to the beach at Blakely Rocks at low tide. Saturday, July 16 is the best tide of the weekend - there is a -2.74 tide and on Sunday the tide is not quite as low. This is a great opportunity to explore the sea life that lives below and makes for a good family outing. Kids love finding the little sea creatures. So get ready for some fun in the sun on the beach at Blakely Rocks. Bring your beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach blankets, sunscreen and don't forget a potluck item.

    Some of you may prefer to join us for just the day - it is possible to anchor for a short time off the beach.

    Here's the plan

    Saturday - July 16 - arrive at Blakely Harbor and get rafted / anchored  .

    At noonish - Take your dinghy and potluck item to Blakley Rocks beach and set up for brunch. Gather for brunch and social time and then explore the low tide pools and rocks at low tide 1:30.( In the past we have had the event on the rocks on Sunday but this year the better tide is on Saturday.)  This makes for an early departure from the dock on Saturday. Or go over the night before for a more relaxed weekend. Don't forget your water shoes or boots for splashing in the shallows.

    Saturday evening - happy hour with drinks and appetizers (we call this a dippy dinner because after so many snacks no dinner is needed)

    Sunday - Have coffee with your neighbor. Go ashore for some great walks to Rich Passage or a shorter hike up to the Labyrinth Park.

    Looking forward to seeing you at Blakely Harbor.

    . More detailed info will be sent to those who are registered as we get closer to event.
